Zhejiang Folk Art in the Republic of China (1912-1949)
     The Revolution of 1912 overthrew the Qing Dynasty and gave birth to the Republic of China. This was not only a milestone in Chinese history, but also a turn in the development of Zhejiang folk arts.
     During this period, many kinds of folk arts were heavily influenced by the society and were developed in both form and content to meet the recreational needs of urban residents. From one or two performers to many performers, from light make-up to the painted, from platform to lofty hathpace, folk arts evolved to operas little by little yet still coexisted with the latter. The quickest among them was "Luo Di Chang Shu" of Shenxian County.
